Help Victims of Cyclone Fani

SOS Children's Villages of India Disaster Relief and Emergency Response team is working to provide support to minimum 1000 families.

Cyclone FANI, is the India's strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall in 20 years, has struck Odisha with sustained winds of 175 kilometers per hour. The storm was the equivalent of a Category 4, triggering heavy rainfall in vast areas. 
Large areas in the town of Puri and other regions were submerged under water as heavy rains hit the entire coastal belt of the state.  Families who were already living on the brink of poverty are now been left with nothing. The loss of life, homes, crops, and livestock is devastating. Around 8, 00,000 people have been evacuated. Our team is on the ground, implementing a long-term rehabilitation programme for the worst-affected families. 
As it happens with almost every natural disaster, children are hit the hardest! They struggle to come to terms with intense psychological trauma as they deal with the loss of homes, belongings. Children need urgent support to make it through this crisis.
